Pictures of the Day

In case you’ve been asleep the past few days, a “Super Moon” lit up Saturday’s night sky across the globe.  It looked especially big and bright since it was closest to Earth and in its full phase at the same time.  The “Super Moon” was as much as 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full moons of 2012.  Here are just a handful of photos of this spectacular and breathtaking phenomenon.
